A piece of history is now on full display along Main Street in Old Fort.  The story of civil rights leaders Albert Joyner and George Sandlin is brightly depicted on the large, east-facing brick wall of what was once Sandlin’s theater.  This is a great example of being a good neighbor, explained artist Don Remix.

In collaboration with Mountain Glory Quilters Guild, this year’s Quilt Show is displayed on the MACA gallery walls, in lieu of hanging quilt-rack displays.  Masks are required for your visit to MACA.  They also provide hand sanitizer upon entry to limit surface contamination.  Stop in and see these beautiful quilts Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12 to 5 or Tuesdays and Fridays from 12 to 6pm.

Volunteers continue to be  needed every day at the Foothills Food Hub.  Please email mcdowellLFAC@gmail.com to sign up.  There are some evening distributions and work sessions, so that may be an opportunity for others to volunteer
